Affronts [In reply to] Can't Post

At his age, it may be relevant - not insulting. Though the post in question made no effort to form a relevant question and was all about devilish, winky humor.

As far as generalizing questions about the religion of public figures, I'd be careful. Is it irrelevant to ask about Reverend Jessie Jackson's religious beliefs? Or Billy Graham's? How about Gandhi's? It's only that Peter Jackson's beliefs aren't relevant *unless* he makes an issue of it in some manner, such as producing a film with a religious theme.

It's all about context and intent.
